What would the use exactly be of degrading quality of uncompressed audio?

If you cannot tell the difference between original and compressed versions then they have the same audio quality.

I'm afraid vinyl contains more noise than LossyWAV files. laugh.gif

...and with just four posts to your name, methinks you may have joined HA with mischief in mind, given your three posts in this thread.

nope, interested why there is such thing like LossyWav, it sounded a bit like the equivalent of PuregoldImpurifier to me

A silly question, because I didn't really think about using lossywav before.
SInce I sometimes digitize vinyls, I thought of using lossywav on the wave files. Vinyls have lower S/N ratio than CDs, so is using lossywav on vinyls OK? Noise level introduced will still be lower than the hum and rumble from vinyls?

Should be - I would suggest using at least --standard, if not --extreme for this as it is a master copy.

lossyWAV -q X -a 4 --feedback 4| FLAC -8 ~= 320kbps

I've used Lossywav on loads of vinyl. Works a treat. There's no noticeable additional noise introduced if that's what's worrying you.
